bill, i was looking thru this thread again.  i noticed one of the pix, it looks like you have the gearbox mounted in backwards.  is that for more clearance?  have you done any more on this lately?  what motor are you using?  any help is wanted...............steve


It might just look that way since I removed a lot of the frame. The motor and gears came from late production MDC 2-8-0's. I used it them because the can motor ran better and didn't take as much space. Both of the K27's will use the same type motor and gear setup.

I got side-tracked when I received some parts I had been waiting on for a long time that were for something else. I will get back to the K27's soon.
